Callie walks up with the paper for Sloan but won't let the girl grab it from her and first reminds the girl of everything Mark did for her: took her in, gave her money, flew her to LA for surgery. She says that if Sloan won't tell Mark, she will, and on cue he shows up to answer his page. Sloan is pissed but when Callie finally starts to tell him she jumps in and blurts out that she's going to give the baby up for adoption, so that he will have good parents and a good home. Mark begs her not to, but she holds firm and so he without thinking blurts out, "Give him to me. I'll take him." He pauses a moment as if to think about the words that just came out of his mouth and then adds, "I'll adopt him." The girls are both stunned but Mark pleads with his daughter, telling her that he's ready for this and that he knows he should have been there for her but he wasn't. There's no real mention here of the fact that he never was given a choice in that matter -- he obviously would never have been dad of the year but that can't be held fully against him as he didn't have a chance. Sloan wants the baby to have a family, though, and while Mark is great he's just one guy. Callie, seeing how sincere Mark is, then does the unthinkable and blurts out that she will help him, that she's just across the hall and they are best friends and good people who will love the baby and take care of him together. Mark begs Sloan to think about it and finally she smiles and agrees that they can talk about it at home later.
Mrs. Banks is in bed and seems kind of numb after the events of the day and then Emile's declaration of his decades-long love. Meredith is watching from outside and Alex joins her with some Valentine's chocolates he swiped from a coma patient. Ha! Oh, that's totally mean. But seriously, who gives chocolates to someone in a coma? That's a waste of delightful candy morsels. Mere updates him that she thinks Mrs. B. wants to say something, but Emile is sleeping. Cristina joins them and asks what they are doing, so they give her the story in a nutshell -- he loves her, will she say anything or will her boring husband die? Meredith adds that it's all okay because she and her husband are miserable, and then asks if this is what marriage turns into: running out of things to say and changing who you are? The other two tell her that it is, and Meredith counters that she didn't marry Derek to be the Chief's "arm candy," nor did she marry him for the good surgeries, as Cristina suggests. Mrs. Banks turns towards Emile and they are all excited, thinking she's about to say something, until Meredith realizes that she actually is struggling to breathe and they run in and yell for a crash cart.
